Introduction to our Careers programme
It is the vision of the school that all students should aim to ‘Work hard, be kind and do the right thing’ in all aspects of their education and become the most employable young people by the time they leave school.
We recognise that guidance should be provided that is in the best interests of the young person, is presented in an impartial manner and that good careers guidance is distinctive to the needs of individual students.
Some examples of how we monitor our programme include:
• Year 12 Careers fair – verbal feedback from the pupils and written or verbal feedback from the exhibitors.
• MOCK interview day – surveys taken from both the pupils and employers.
• Work experience week – surveys taken from both the pupils and the work experience providers. Contact is also made with each placement during the week.
• One-to-one careers interviews – All the pupils that have a careers interview are asked for feedback on this service.
Our current Careers Lead is Katie Whittaker (KS3 and KS4) and Jerome Foley (KS5).
